    On my last Offroad Mecca trip I ended up breaking one of my "golden" rules.....

    -Always hook up trailer without the assistance of others. This way I know it is done, and done right.

    We were hitting the trails hard, lots of things going on. Well my brother put up my ramps and locked them down, or so I thought. The road out was about 12 miles of dirt road that was a little bumpy to say the least. I'm not sure where we lost it, but I hope it was on the dirt road so nobody was hurt.

    I called around locally and got a 240.00 quote from multiple places and I had to buy two. Well that wasn't happening. So, I went to my favorite steel supply store and picked up some C channel and angle iron. I even paid for 8 cuts (1.00 each), and found some scrap 1/4" plate that already had a 90* bend. Winning!!!! $57.00 later, a beer and 1.25 hours....

    Moral of the story: Don't be a dumbass when hooking up your trailer. In the event you are a dumbass, building your own ramps are way cheaper.
